ARRIVAL / CHECKIN
Check-in between 3:30pm and 6pm so that you can be settled in before dinner. Karl’s course will begin on the first day with dinner at 6:30pm. In consideration of staff and resident meditators at the center please do not arrive at Felsentor for checkin before 3:30pm. Checkout time: last day after lunch, about 1:00pm
You are welcome to leave early if needed. Just keep us informed. Please be advised we cannot offer partial refunds for unused days or meals.
All meals are provided, included in the price. Meals are chef-prepared and vegetarian, and some dishes may include egg and dairy. Special dietary needs can be considered only to a limited extent, and only by advance arrangement at least two weeks before the retreat to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We make our best effort to accommodate every guest`s request. All the rooms are lovely and quiet with view of the lake, gardens, or forest. We cannot guarantee an exact room because we have a limited number of single rooms and particular views. Toward fairness and consistency, we allocate rooms with priority toward earliest date of registration. Therefore, kindly refrain from asking retreat staff to change your room. If you requested a single room, please be advised that we will do our best to accommodate your request, and it is very often possible, but if the retreat nears full capacity, and if many guests request singles, we cannot convert all double rooms to singles, so we might ask later registrants to share a room with a roommate of same gender. Room price would be adjusted accordingly in that case.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
Yoga mat, warm clothing, sturdy walking shoes or boots and a flashlight (torch). The 15 minute walk from the Romiti train station to Felsentor is unpaved, steep, and not suitable for luggage with wheels. We suggest bringing a backpack or duffel bag with shoulder strap. For meditation, comfortable clothing in muted colors. House shoes and work clothing will also come in handy.
WHAT IS PROVIDED
The retreat provides you with towel and bed sheets, yoga mats, blocks, and straps. However you might like to bring your own mat. ; )
